City Cards

Hello everybody!

Today, I want to talk about city cards, and whether or not they are worth their price.

While visiting Prague, we had no idea (or maybe there wasn’t one at the time!) about Prague Card, so we only bought 2 72-hour tickets, one for each of us, which were valid for all forms of transport around the city (like metro, bus, trams, etc.). They proved to be very useful, and the cost / benefit ratio was really good! All in all, I really recommend Prague as a budget-friendly destination, but I will write more about that in dedicated articles!

While visiting Lisbon, I was already sort of familiar with the “City Card” concept, so I looked up the card and decided to buy it. It proved to be a great idea, as the card was valid up to and including our trip to the airport, so it was a wise choice.

Do you have any advice regarding City Passes?

  1. Since I’m doing so many city trips, I always look for city cards, usually, they are great and a good bargain. Only the one for NYC is not really worth it. Other than that – let’s hear it for city cards!

  2. Hi! Thanks for great advice. Haven’t used city cards myself, but now after your post I should consider using them. I guess they will save me a lot of money if I will use the transport 🙂

  3. City Cards are good as they offer great value for money plus save you from hassle. It makes sense to buy one if you are planning to use public transport during your travel. Though I feel that they somehow limit the way you travel.

  4. Well, in Scandinavia, city passes only make sence, when you visit a lot of museums over multiple days. But generally, they are so expensive, not worth buying

  5. I have only ever bought the city cards once in Lisbon as most of my travels are adhoc that they never seem to be worth it for my style of travel sometimes. But I agree they do offer great value for money for what they give you access to.
